“Like the collision of matter and anti-matter”
Republican Leadership is debating moving the ever-jacketless Ohio GOP Congressman Jim Jordan to the House Intelligence Committee in a clear attempt to spy on and disrupt the fast-moving and highly-productive impeachment inquiry. The Intel Committee is the primary committee investigating the president.
Calling him “a fiery supporter of the president,” CBS News reports the discussions among House leadership are “active and serious.”
Some political experts find Jordan’s conspiracy theories and overall disrespectful and belligerent nature inappropriate.
Well-known political strategist Steve Schmidt, a senior campaign advisor to the McCain 2008 presidential campaign and now a former Republican, has previously voiced his opinion of Congressman Jordan:
Jim Jordan is a clown, albeit a dangerous one . He is an heir to McCarthy, Demagogic, dangerous and faithless to his oath and America. He is unfit to serve in the Congress https://t.co/eAomHgJonE

On the news that Jordan may be added to the Intel Committee, prominent political scientist, professor of international relations, and journalist David Rothkopf weighed in colorfully, describing the effect the GOP is looking for by moving Jordan:
This shows that the GOP’s main line of defense will be letting a monkey into the room and having him throw poop at everyone during the proceedings. https://t.co/yp1f1aVQSq

He will finally be exposed to some form of intelligence.

Jordan coming in contact with anything related to “intelligence” would be like the collision of matter and anti-matter.

Gym Jordan and Matt Gaetz should wrestle Jerry Falwell Jr’s pool boy with the winner getting the right to be on the Intelligence Committee. Just like in the Bible.

Gym Jordan and intelligence simply do not go together. https://t.co/PcqB8xbwSU

‘Too Many Middle Fingers to Count’: Protestors Greet Trump on His Way to NH Rally With ‘One Fingered Salutes’
President Donald Trump is traveling to New Hampshire Friday evening where he will hold a short rally then head back home to the White House.
As the presidential motorcade made its way to Joint Base Andrews to board Air Force One the White House press pool released some very descriptive details.
Most press poolers try to capture the scene wherever they go, delivering descriptions including information about the weather, sometimes what the president is wearing, if there are supporters or protestors and what they’re doing.
This particular scene apparently offered a large number of details.
“The president’s motorcade moved down Pennsylvania Avenue on a route that took us past throngs of protesters who are presumably here for the events marking the anniversary of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s March on Washington,” the pool report reads.
“Many of the protesters along the avenue greeted the motorcade with raised middle fingers,” it notes.
“There were far too many middle fingers to count. Several of the peope in the crowd opted to raise both of their middle fingers in a double barreled one finger salute,” it continues. “Some of the protesters waved signs. A few that were clearly legible read ‘BLM’ and ‘BLACK LIVES MATTER.’ One man’s sign that was visible from the motorcade said, ‘WHITE SILENCE = BLACK DEATH.'”

Eric Trump Mocked for Tweeting Image of Ghislaine Maxwell With Clintons — When His Dad Hung Out With Her Repeatedly
On Thursday, following the arrest of former Jeffrey Epstein associate Ghislaine Maxwell, Eric Trump posted a picture of Maxwell at Chelsea Clinton’s wedding.
Birds of a feather… pic.twitter.com/4rBugxJGxc
— Eric Trump (@EricTrump) July 2, 2020
He was immediately deluged in scorn from social media, as commenters reminded him of all the pictures of Maxwell with his own father.
Does the president's son not know that there are photos of Donald Trump with Maxwell?
